About the neighbourhood
It is 4 mins to Mapua seaside village - the jewel in Nelson's crown. With cafes, beaches, wilderness, artisans, wineries, fishing, it is the ideal holiday destination. At The Gates Accommodation you can walk or bike to world-famous wineries (like Neudorf Vineyard), pop down to Mapua for dining at the award-winning cafes (while the kids are babysat by our approved babysitters), or simply enjoy the many beaches and outdoor/arts opportunities. We are in the middle of a jazz festival as I write this - imagine listening to music at nearby wineries whilst taking in the views of the mountains and sea. We have cycle hire and route options for you.
Getting around
We have a fleet of e-bikes for hire or standard bikes for free - explore the famous Great Taste Trail (ranked in the top 3 in NZ).
